it's all good!

It all stands up to being a 4 star hotel. The suite had everything I needed to get through a pleasurable weekend. As well the staff was very knowledgeable.

Not like it use to be

I stayed there 2 yrs ago and the little extras are not longer offered. They use to give u $12 per person a day voucher for the restaurant in front but they no longer offer that. They also use to offer free umbrellas and chairs on the beach but that's also a thing of the past. Unfortunately the price isn't any cheaper with less. And don't try getting fresh wash clothes because we had to call the front desk every day because the maid would forget to leave them.

Great location

It's worth the extra cost for the upgrade to one bedroom suite. Dont expect to see the ocean, view was very limited. Double pane windows keeps noise out. Room was very clean, quiet, and everything worked, including the central AC. Balcony isn't a full balcony, it was a full size sliding door that opened up to a window sill with railing, which worked great, felt like a balcony! I would stay again. Hotel was several smaller hotels combined into one hotel, so some of the rooms required some unique navigation. Room service lacking, but that's great. I didn't have to worry about intrusions during my week stay. Pool difficult to get to, not easily accessible from where my room was. Had to go outside, walk through a crowded sidewalk cafe, into another building, to access roof top pool. A+++

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

Avoid the restaurants on ocean drive, not good. But within walking distance, Burger King sells beer, Cvs, Uni-mart,,don't miss Lincoln Road Mall for a much better dining experience. Drinks avg $10 and up, so if you drink a lot, it's expensive. Stay on ocean drive to drink and party and walk back to hotel a few steps away.

Great trip

We had a great time, the hotel is located in the heart of South Beach, just steps away from most restaurants and night clubs and, of course, the beach. Staff was greatly helpful with everything, party of the roof top, the only thing we were not completely satisfied with was the everyday housekeeping. They missed a couple of things every time they cleaned. Other than that, the hotel is worth staying at, and we enjoyed our room (partly ocean view with kitchenette) a lot.

girls trip

Our stay at the Congress was pleasant. The room size was comfortable and the location was perfect. I was disappointed that there was no entertainment at the pool. On the website I was lead to believe that a DJ would be playing music nightly at the pool. Upon arrival we discovered the music is only on the weekend. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We would definitely stay at the Congress again.

Guys weekend in South Beach

Very friendly and accommodating staff. The room was clean, VERY big and an excellent view of the beach. Reserve the junior suite it is worth it!! The location is in the heart of south beach, walking distance to all the fun spots. Nice bathrooms and having a kitchen came in very handy! Rooftop pool was also fun!

Will definetley book again!

Great location if your looking to party.. The restaurants right below the hotel has music going all day. I went with friends and has an ocean view suite which felt like a mini apartment to us. The beach is right across the street. Mangos and Wet Willies are in walking distance. Overall its a great hotel if you want that party feeling..
